The latest series is taking place across two different periods. One is alongside The Mandalorian and Ahsoka and the other happens immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi.
Every great story has to start somewhere and this story starts where Bobba is captured by the Sand people in his past memories and somehow he becomes a crime lord in his present life
The episode starts in the Halls of Jabba’s palace and depicts that it is no longer thriving like the same it used to be. The halls are empty and there we see our armored hero in a Bacta tank with a tube in his mouth similar to how we saw Luke when he was recovering during The Empire Strikes Back.
Thus it explains why the character has few scars on his face and why he is looking better than he did in The Mandalorian.
There were many familiar faces in the first episode including the Jawas, sand people, and many others from the star wars universe. Many fight sequences thrilled the fans. The ninja-style fight scene and a Tatooine monster fight seen have received many acclamations already.
Many people felt very nostalgic to see their favorite characters again and Bobba fans were waiting years to see their favorite hero in his series.
Boba Fett is played by Temuera Morrison after his explosive performance in The Mandalorian. He first did the role of Jango, father of Bobba in Attack of Clones.
Fennec shand, the right arm of Boba, is played by Ming- Na Wen. She also played Melina May in Marvel’s Agents of Shield.
Anyway, there are mixed opinions about the latest episode. Some opine that the action scenes are slow and for some, it seemed mechanical. Some others enjoyed Boba rebuilding the underworld with a new philosophy. For some others, the first episode seemed too flat in its presentation.
The first episode was indeed a good start and gave many doubts as well as expectations to the fans. Star war fans hope that future episodes will reveal the dynamic Bobba, his magical performances, and badass moments.
